Dubai Islamic Bank donates AED2.5 mn to Khalifa Foundation's healthcare initiative


The Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) has donated AED 2.5 million to the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation (KF) to support its recently launched healthcare initiative “Your Giving is a Cure and Happiness”.

The fund will be used to purchase 77 physiotherapy equipments, which will be distributed to 15 medical centres.
